administration, president obama's administration, charged with this duty is the director of office of management and budget, historically that has been the case. but my concerns go deeper than that. i believe that every public official in this nation owes an absolute loyalty to the united states, to the betterment of this country and its government. and to the institutional processes that lead to the governing of america. there can be no doubt that every government official from the president on down is accountable to the institutions of our government and to the people, ultimately, without doubt the direction of o.m.b., the director of o.m.b. has such a duty. he's required to meet that duty with honor, honesty, efficiency, and responsiveness. he serves us. we don't serve him. he serves the american people. the american people send their money to washington and they expect it will be honestly and openly managed, accountable. they have every right to demand high performance from all officials, but particularly the director of the office of office of management and budget. surely there can be no h
